Very good food. We ate here twice while in Chatham and we're pleased all around. Wait staff were friendly and prompt and the good was fresh. Very creative dishes made eating a great experience. We will definitely recommend this place to others.

This was a busy little place but being out of season we got in without booking, just. A really good buzzing atmosphere with seemingly an older crowd. I think we were the youngest there. Great service and some more unusual things on the menu. Plenty of seafood as you would expect from the name.

We went to dinner here with another couple, and looked forward to fresh seafood at such a highly rated restaurant. None of us had ever dined here before. This was not one of the better restaurants I have dined in, despite the other ratings. We all found the food to be good - not amazing, but good. But the atmosphere... More

Returned to this establishment after several years - the shrimp Po-boy was great, but the duck comfit over mashed potatoes was just too mushy. Great wine selection and very good service. Would certainly give it another try.

On a recent Friday afternoon, my daughter, Stefanie, and I went to the Impudent Oyster for lunch, and we both came away very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the service and food. Tara was our server, and after some discussion about the menu and the specials, we both picked from the daily lunch specials menu. Stefanie selected the Tuna... More

My wife and I came in at 4:00 PM and were able to eat at the bar with a limited menu. Bartender was a sweet girl who made us feel right at home. Food was great and reasonable priced.

Had the waitress been better we would have given it a 4 1/2! Only time she really checked back was when it was time to get the bill. Fun place tucked back in on a side street in bustling Chatham. Went on a Friday rainy afternoon for lunch in April - and the place was pretty full. Impressive menu with... More

The food was pretty average to be honest... the waitress was as impudent as the oyster that the restaurant was named after.... when a customer asks what the difference in size is between the small salad and the large salad on your menu, the answer isn't "one is small and the other one is large" - quite rude and unhelpful....

The Impudent Oyster was so highly rated that when we spent a weekend in nearby Harwich, we just had to give it a try. To say that we weren't disappointed is a bit of an understatement: this was one of the better seafood meals we've had in a long time. We started out by sharing an appetizer that was a... More

Located in the heart of Chatham village, the Oyster is a staple for better dining in the Mid-Cape area. The menu is varied with abundant nightly specials. Appetizers are a treat, particularly the crab cake. Our group had both seafood and steak, and all were very pleased. One in our party (let's call her "Donna") commented that the dishes were... More
